Timeless Luxury coupled with Amazing spaces
Daniel, capturing your parents homes finest qualities is going to be crucial to properly marketing this home. This is to include professional photography, videography as well as a drone aerial video of the grounds and golf course. Further highlighting the amenities that are so high end they could not be duplicated (for close to the price) is also important.
Taking the most recent comps (below) into consideration, the market would suggest listing the home for no more than $799,900, $699,900 if your parents were very motivated. I realize this is less than what you and your parents were hoping for. And we can always list at the price that Team Lee desires, I feel compelled to set a reasonable expectation with you going into our working relationship. Listing and showing a home is a lot of work for the sellers and I would not want to put them through the exercise(s) without believing we would realize the desired result.
The available space, design and character of their home is out-of-this-world. Unfortunately some of the features that once made it so luxurious, with todays buyers, will date the home and create concern about the amount of space requiring updates. As we discussed, the Jackson market is still in recovery mode, things have improved but are no where near where they were when your parents purchased the home. My recommendation is to price competitively, create a marketing bliss to generate energy and interest, ultimately selling relatively quickly so that your parents can purchase their next home before the Ann Arbor market gets any stronger.
It would be my honor to represent such a gorgeous home, outstanding location, unique offerings and amazing detail! I am committed to putting in the time and effort such a property warrants and would love to spend more time with your charming mother!
Please let me know how your due diligence is progressing and if we could get together again to discuss further. Thank you and your family for a lovely afternoon and for sharing their master piece!
